I am a vegetarian hence showing the vegetarian version, but normally its made using egg and is called "Mutta kotthu paratha ". Muttai means egg in "Tamil". U can also add shredded chicken to this dish I guess. Just keep experimenting.
Anyways its very very easy and simple to make and I am sure you will love this one. My hubby had never eaten this before and when he did he simply fell in love with this.
I used to have something similar when I was in school. My friend used to get this in dabba....Her mom used to make it with leftover phulkas(rotis) dont remember what she used to call it in marathi...hmmm old days r so good isn't it?
Anyways here goes the recipe and the list of ingredients.
Store bought frozen parathas : 3 (I used malabar paratha)
Onion : 1 finely chopped
Tomato : 2 medium finely chopped
Green chillies : 2 slit lenghtwise
Ginger : 1 inch minced
Cumin seeds (Jeera) : 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Dhania-Jeera powder : 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder : 1 tsp
Red chilli powder (optional)
Oil : 2 tsp
Fresh coriander leaves : 1 whole bunch finely chopped
Thaw the parathas slightly and roast them on the tava accroding to the paskage instruction. Shred them into small pieces with ur hand or using a knife and keep it aside.
In a kadhai take some oil and add the Jeera. Let it crackle. Now add the chopped ginger and mix well. Toss in the onions and saute till transparent and follow with the chopped tomatoes and cook till nice and tender. Add the garam masala, red chilli powder and dhania - jeera powder.Let hte masalas cook well. Once the water evaporates from the tomato onion mix, add the salt and toss in the shreded parathas and mix well on medium high heat. turn off the gas and leave it for 2 minutes. Now garnish with coriander leaves and lemon juice. Mix well and serve hot.:)
I am sure u all will enjoy this. My hubby topped it with some fresh chopped onions and some sev. It tasted delicious...:)
Hope u enjoy this traditional south indian delicacy as much we did.... Yumm is the word for this one !
